A Few Christmas Thank Yous...

It's been too terribly long, and the sad truth is, that I haven't been crafting very much lately. We've both been busy with work and Christmas shopping (so glad that's over) that in my down time I just want to sleep.

But now hopefully most of the rushing around is over. We'll be moving toward getting ready for our ski trip in February..and with our new camera we should have some nice pictures for you to follow along at home.

But since Christmas is over, I was in need of a few thank you here we go...

Jonathan did most of this one...I had to help save it a little, but it's mostly his idea. I've been looking for a good use for the reindeer paper, and I think he's found it.

I distressed the edges on all the paper. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I apologize for the's overcast today and that's the best I could do. I'm really happy with this one's simple, but doesn't look unfinished.

More edge distressing..I really like it.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a good Christmas (I had to work, and was super sick) and is going to have a good New Year's (I have to work..doesn't really seem fair does it..).
I have some Christmas photos and a birthday card or two heading this way, so be on the look out.

Christmas Beasties 2010

So I haven't managed to do anything crafty lately, but I have managed to take pictures of my fur-babies for our Christmas card this year.

Oliver did pretty amazing! Once he figured out he was getting treats..he was all for sitting still.

And he didn't mind the Santa hat that much.


Bean also did fairly well.

He loves treats. He was eating one here..

Aster did not like it at all.

But I managed to get a few decent shots. He was interested while it was his brother's turn..but when his number came up, he was having none of it.

Chippy is always the most difficult.

19 pounds of cat, it's difficult to make him do what you want. Since he can't smell he is not food motivated.

I think our Christmas cards are going to be pretty cute this year. Look for them coming to a mail box near the next few weeks.

Hope everyone is having a good holiday season.
